Boston Tea Tour & Tea Gadgets
Talk about your coincidences. Boston's two big newspapers ran articles on tea on the very same day. That would be yesterday, if you're scoring at home.
In the Boston Globe we discover that tea is becoming the "hottest drink in town" and our intrepid reporter takes us on a tour of a few of the city's tea spots and merchants. Among those covered are Licorice & Sloe, White Heron Tea, Portsmouth Tea Company, Special Teas, Wenham Tea House and Signature Estates Teas. Read the full article here.
Over at the Boston Herald they ran a brief piece on tea gadgets, some of which I've mentioned in these very same pages. Among them - Sunbeam’s Tea Drop Hot Tea Maker, Adagio's triniTEA and the Cuisinart Traditional Cordless Electric Kettle. It's a quickie, but you can read it here.
Tea also made it into at least one other newspaper's Sunday section yesterday. The Express-Times, of Easton, Pennsylvania, also ran a tea article, reporting on the popularity of tea and taking it's readers to a few local tea spots. Read it here.
The paper also reprints Celestial Seasonings' Tips for Brewing the Best Cup of Hot Tea here.
